Beautiful for hiking practice or a leisurely hike! Bikers stay off the hiking trail, which is nice. Really good distance.

Nice and relaxing !!!!!

Nice little walk in Northville. Cute little lake you can go fishing or just walk along the trail and enjoy the outside. Just keep filling the green markers for hiking.

Nice trail but a bit icy today. There are a couple small hills but nothing difficult. The app helped in the center section as a section of the trail was chewed up from construction vehicles within the park. Didn't effect the overall experience.

I’ve only visited this trail in the snowy winter, but it was a beautiful walk through pretty forests and along a lakeside. Despite the cold and the snow, we weren’t the only hikers that morning, but the general peacefulness and relative solitude were sublime.

Great trail. Well travelled but quiet. More moderate than easy. Small markings - take partner and/or cell phone for safety.

Nice trail layout. Trail crosses horse trail once but is separated everywhere else to keep the hikers and riders separated.

Excellent easy trail

Not a hard hike at all. Is great for a relaxing, scenic stroll through a dense Michigan forest. Take the detour to the fishing pond. Looks like something out of a fantasy book.

Nice double loop considering its suburban setting. Trail goes mostly through mature forest. Pond features good waterfowl viewing. Green carsonite posts and trail junction markers mark the hiking trails.

Very nice local trail, well marked and mostly easy. Enjoyable changes from woods and wetlands to a 1-mile meadow loop. Horses, hikers, mtb, dogs, all share the trails companionably. Look for historic landmarks from the Maybury Sanitorium. Saw many bird species, garter snakes (shy), & butterflies including Black Swallowtail.

Great little trail, peaceful, nice scenery, love the horses, and close to home

Easy to navigate, nice 3 mile loop. The lake provides outlets to sit and each lunch, and trails are clearly marked for hikers vs. equestrian.

This is my "go to" trail. Very well marked trail with lots of variation. Makes me feel like I am out there in nature and not just in the neighborhood. Lots of other smaller trails available for added variation in the park. If wearing hiking boots, consider trying the horse trails for extra fun and change of pace.

Very simple hiking. Difficult in the winter because the path becomes a solid sheet of snow and ice. In the spring/summer/fall months this trail is heavily trafficked. Would be a very easy hike for families with children or seniors.

This is one of my favorite hikes. It has many hills but it is beautiful and usually pretty uncrowded.

The trial is Very well marked/labeled. Well maintained trails. Decent elevation changes, and great views. There are a few covered picnic areas, and a kids playground area, all of which is very well cared for. Very enjoyable hike for me and my two dogs.

I did this in the fall and love it! Even with leaves covering most of the trail it is pretty easy to follow. Close enough to the parking lot that you won't feel like you are getting lost, far enough to enjoy some peaceful sounds of nature!
